Crossflashing a Imation IMWDVRW16DLI

#1

Hi, my Imation drive plays/writes dvds ok but a while ago it stopped reading cds.

I have tried removing Alcohol and Daemon Tools with no luck; cds still fail to read.

I was wondering if anyone would know how I should crossflash my drive and what is recommended?

Thanks. Any help or suggestions would be great :slight_smile:

First try to boot from a bootable CD.
If that fails then clean it. If it fails even after cleaning the cd part is dead beyond repair.

I tried the boot cd…it’s a hardware problem.

thanks for pointing me in the right direction to find the root of the problem

Don’t forget to set up the drive as bootable in the BIOS. :wink:
